- Fantastic bass
- Clean and rhythmic
- Very extended treble
- High sensitivity and more than generous maximum sound output
- Treble can be a little bright
- Everything is undermined by a degree of muddle in complex sounds
TechRadar Our verdict
"Too much of a mixed blessing for straight recommendation, this headphone has potential that we hope future developments may be able to unlock. In the meantime, the excellent ATH-W1000 at £400 is what we'd recommend"
